To say that Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit by Kylie has been doing gangbusters in sales and online interest is an understatement. As noted by the @LipKitbyKylie Twitter account, the lip kits by Jenner got so many orders that the website initially crashed. Further updates on Kylie’s Twitter account prove the popularity of the lipstick. Listings on eBay show how much folks are willing to sell their lip kits for, and how much fans of Kylie are willing to spend on their own “Lip Kit by Kylie” obsession.
Amazingly, the sold listings for Kylie’s lip kits on eBay shows a completed listing of a Kylie lip kit that sold for $1,000. Others show a winning bid for $997 for one of Jenner’s lip kits, which began on eBay with a starting price of only $20.
According to LipKitbyKylie.com, the lip kits are priced at $29 each.
One eBay listing shows a “buy it now” price for a brand new Kylie lip kit going for $750 for immediate purchases. Another eBay listing for two of Kylie’s lip kits is listed at $675 as of this writing. The description of the eBay listing lets buyers know exactly what they’d be buying for the price.

Meanwhile, those who have gotten their hands on a
#LipKitbyKylie are sharing their looks under that hashtag on Twitter.
The lip kits represent a positive way that Jenner turned her lip filler controversy into profit. Initially, Kylie wasn’t ready to talk about her lip fillers, but upon admitting the truth, the interest in her lips continued, and now a bunch of interest about her lip kits are one of the results of such honesty.
Reviews about the lip kits from folks who’ve tried Jenner’s foray into the lipstick industry are being published online as well. As reported by Seventeen, Kylie’s matte lip kit fare and accouterments got a solid B+ grade from Elizabeth Denton, the writer who wore it all day, and received lots of compliments about the bold shade. Denton reported that Kylie’s lip kit contents lasted pretty much all day throughout her drinking and eating, and she only refreshed it once or twice with gloss that helped to moisturize the matte lip kit items.
Kylie’s lips have made plenty of news and created buzz over the years. Jenner admitted feeling self conscious about her smaller lips, and eventually made the admission that Kylie received lip fillers. In time, the social media craze called the “Kylie Jenner lip challenge” found some young folks sucking their lips into shot glasses and getting injured. Meanwhile, Jenner is facing accusations of lip imagery theft, as reported by the Daily Mail.
